    I want to start a t shirt brand with my own art and also do graffiti under the same name but have it so that i keep anonymous. I plan to be completely legit paying my taxes, but the public graffiti work,that would compromise my business if it were connected to my actual name. any advice would help, thanks.

    Do you still live in 1990 ? This must be a message from the past!

    You may open your account with Bank of America and ask Donald Trump to introduce you..

    It's not going to happen with an anonymous bank account any longer!

    You can hide your personal name, address etc behind an offshore corp. for instant in Belize, but that's it. Forget about tax evasion.

    okay, if that's your goal you can simply register a Belize or Seychelles entity and appoint nominees so you will stay anonymous towards whoever your customers are.. just forget about anonymity if you do something criminal towards authorities they will catch you!

    I want to remain anon myself but not to evade anything and for no criminal reasons. My first is I don't want my pen name blown, no public interviews no curious people using odd methods to find me.

    I still want to take advantage of marketing techniques, and services and receive payment.

    My second reason is its part of the sales gimmick strategy. I want the product highly publicized to the niche but not myself and that's my right...But how to do it? How do I work with services? Affiliates?

    Again It is legit but a novel strategy and I don't want the book tied with my other public works for image reasons.

    Pro's, wizards, should not even be able to blow the pen name and post their findings. What are my options here?

    just tell everybody you do it for a friend and that friend who does this wants to stay anonymous.

    A Delaware LLC accomplishes this, and it's a lot cheaper than more exotic offshore locales. Only one person must be made available to the registered agent; the agent will verify with a phone call. That person does not need to be the owner of the LLC.

    There is a simple way you can accomplish this, and I guarantee you 100% anonymity as long as you don't need a real bank account :) This has a basic setup fee starting at €1500 so please don't post or PM me if you are looking for a $20 solution.
